LOS ANGELES, CA (August 21, 2020) – BOOM! Studios announced today that POWER RANGERS: DRAKKON NEW DAWN #1, the first issue of a brand new three-issue limited series about the Ranger Slayer – Kimberly Hart, Drakkon’s mightiest warrior—fighting against the deadly secrets of her former master’s legacy, from writer Anthony Burch (Big Trouble in Little China: Old Man Jack), artist Simone Ragazzoni (Odessa), colorist Raúl Angulo and letterer Ed Dukeshire, has sold out at the distributor level just one day after its release!
In response to the overwhelming support from retailers and fans, BOOM! Studios has announced POWER RANGERS: DRAKKON NEW DAWN #1 SECOND PRINTING, available on September 16, 2020 and featuring brand new cover art by Mora.
After the shocking events of Power Rangers: Ranger Slayer #1, Kimberly is determined to purge the terrifying hold that Drakkon has had over her world, starting with Deadlock; the prison tower where Drakkon held all those who opposed him. But even the Ranger Slayer has no clue of the true power kept in Deadlock—and what unlocking the doors will set into motion. As Kimberly investigates the worst of Drakkon’s secrets, she sets in motion Drakkon’s final plan—one that will pit her against a fan-favorite Power Rangers villain like you’ve never seen them before!
